White Dog is sitting at her window, under house arrest. The electricians arrived this morning to hook up the monitoring for the solar panels. Since they are going up on the roof and into the yard for the electrical junction box, the gate to the yard remained open. White Dog knows her boundaries and not to leave the yard so we were not concerned. I was working on the computer when there was a persistent knocking at the front door. I answered to find one of the electricians, White Dog at his side. He explained that she had been following them around as they worked, which was not a problem, but that White Dog had been laying on the seat of their truck and now they had to leave temporarily to go pick up supplies! White Dog pranced past him and settled herself on the couch. After thanking the worker, I turned to White Dog a little angry and a lot scared..."You know better than to leave the yard," I said slowly, breathing deeply. "And what are you even thinking climbing into a stranger's vehicle? I would be devastated if something were to happen to you or if you disappeared!" White Dog rolled her eyes. "I am serious," I said. "I want you to stay inside and think about what I said. No going out unless you tell me there is a need!" So now she sits...

Oh no White Dog. Your mom is SO right - you could have been doggy-napped, or worse - they could have driven off and not realized you were behind the truck! And to be IN the truck?? Yikes! I'm with mom on this one - as we read it, we were so scared for you (Ok,maybe we chuckled a little too! I'm sure you only had the best of intentions as the amazing supervisor that you are, but please stay safe beautiful girl!

Uh oh. White Dog. Moma's know best. You'd better listen and do whatever it takes to rebuild her trust in you. That's the most important thing.

But, girl to girl, you just MIGHT want to take advantage of the situation and explain to your moma that is is exactly WHY a girl needs her own cell phone. Mine's pink. Heeheeeheee!

Love

Rut roh - White Dog, that is a big no no - don't go away from your boundaries and never get in a stranger's truck. Poor Mom, now go be a good pup. Maybe Dragon is rubbing off on you too much:)

Uh oh, Siku. I'm so glad that the electrician was a nice man. You are so cute that anyone just might want to take you. Your Mom is right. Although, I'm sure you knew he was a nice man...for you to jump into his truck. Still, you be safe with your Mom inside the house today.:)

Love,
Teddy Bear

oh white dog. I can't believe you tried to take a ride with the electricians! Don't take treats from strangers, that's what mom always says. Some lady in a store tried to give ben a treat the other day and started fighting with sister when she tried to explain that ben has a 'condition'! She was just mad at sister, and finally gave up when sister mentioned the 'bloody diarrhea' when the lady was persistently yelling at her.

That must have been a very scary moment! Glad you are okay Siku. Listen to your Mom!
